MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
- What is Medical Weight Loss: For those seeking medical intervention to help them through their weight loss journey, there are medically-led, anti-obesity solutions such as prescribed weight loss medications.
- Anti-obesity medication and advice from a medical professional is a safe alternative to bariatric surgical procedures such as gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass. Weight loss medications work by either reducing your appetite, so you consume fewer calories, by reducing absorption, so fewer calories enter your blood stream, or by increasing fat burning. Slimming pills are a safe option to assist with a weight loss program for some people but must be prescribed and monitored by a medical professional.
- Common Medications used for weight loss include Phentermine, Releena, Lipotropic injections, HCG injections, and B12 injections.
